special secret flight, only 14 aboard..
but really I see them either avoiding the fact that multiple people will die, and those he saved were the only ones on the plane. (I hope not) or, yes a few people are going to die (pilots, a few workers, as stated above.)
The whole 'not being able to save everyone all the time' mortality angle, could actually be a really big plot point in this, aka why he possibly creates Rescue and has that scene where he's talking about saving the ones closest to him. (because maybe he couldn't save all those on the plane)
I'd also guess that him either being framed for the plane attack, or him not being able to save everyone in such a public attack is going to have the gov't & public looking down on him too.
Basically Tony vs the world, which is cool.
